It is another sad day in America. Our economy is in the tank. The federal deficit has surpassed 16 trillion dollars and is spiraling out of control. We have 42 months of unemployment over 8%. The government’s own U-6 numbers paint “real unemployment” in the United States for states like Nevada at 22.1, Rhode Island at 18.3, the bankrupt Californians at a very troublesome 20.3%, while the national U-6 tops out at 14.9% (U-6 numbers provide a more comprehensive tally of how many Americans are really out of work). Many economists estimate that the United States is a mere 2 years away from where Greece was when their economic meltdown began. And if that’s not enough to make any warm-blooded patriot sigh, there is 9/11/2012.
Career diplomat and US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens was killed along with two of my fellow Marines and a communications officer. No, I did not personally know the Marines that were murdered, but we are all brothers-in-arms. Four Americans went to their graves at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2012. Ostensibly retaliation reported for a remote youtube video that insulted the Muslim prophet Mohammed. But most Americans are intelligent enough to realize what its all really about; 9/11 and radical Muslim extremism. These black turbin devils hate America and everything we stand for. They kill in the name of Allah while shrieking “allahu akbar” like Nadal Milak Nisan, a US army major stationed at Fort Hood,TX in 2009. The Muslim extremist opened fire with at least two handguns killing 13 human beings, 12 were soldiers (one was pregnant), and one Army civilian employee. Thirty others were wounded bringing total casualties to 43.
Christianity teaches the golden rule. To “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” But Muslims have their own version of the bible. It’s called the Quran. Part of this Islamic religion states such niceties as: “And the Jews will not be pleased with you, nor the Christians until you follow their religion. Say: Surely Allah’s guidance, that is the (true) guidance. And if you follow their desires after the knowledge that has come to you, you shall have no guardian from Allah, nor any helper.” (Sura 2, verse 120).“And KILL them (the unbelievers) wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.” (Sura 2, verse 191). There is more about going to paradise and receiving 72 virgins. These lovlies are “hairless except the eye brows and the head , have “wide and beautiful/lovely eyes , voluptuous/full-breasted [17,”and are “untouched/with hymen unbroken by sexual intercourse .” What a God! These fantasies are promised as a reward to Muslim men. Founded in the Qur’anic text, this concept would seem very appealing and possibly the catalyst for a young Muslim adolescent’s desire to strap on makeshift exploding vests to kill innocent people or the infidels, whichever is most convenient. The sycophants will argue that this is untrue. That violence is not the Muslim way and that the Islamic religion is tolerant. Really? Tell that to the 3,ooo Americans who were near the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001. Tell it to 241 of my fellow Marines who were sleeping in their barracks in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983. Tell it to all the people who were flying on Pan Am flight 103 in 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Tell it to 6 other people or the 1,042 who were injured in 1993 at the World Trade Center. Perhaps those who argue for a new Islamic Cultural Center to be constructed near the World Trade Center hole in the ground should consult Leon Klinghoffer? Klinghoffer was in a wheelchair aboard the cruise ship Achille Lauro with his wife in 1985 celebrating their 36th wedding anniversary. Of course there is the 19 American servicemen in the Khobar Towers or the 17 US Navy sailors aboard the USS Cole? If that doesn’t work for ya, I guess you turn your attention to some civilians like Nick Berg, Jack Hensley, Eugene Armstrong or Paul Johnson. That is, if you can find their heads. But wait! Oh! Wait a minute here! My bad. You can’t ask any of those wonderful people because they are not around anymore. Yes, they were murdered. You know, slay them, the Holy War. Whatever is so damn holy about war I’ll never know. Well, perhaps their families could share some thoughts with some of those people who refuse to publicly declare a war on radical Muslim extremism. They just can’t bring themselves to face reality by calling the war on terror a war on terror. These are the same folks who are against water-boarding. You know who they are. They whined and moaned about how water-boarding is really torture. I guess they missed the news about 9/11. But they are for killing people with drones armed with high-tech missiles at 30,000 feet. Just don’t water-board a known terrorist for information that might save American lives, like the ones mentioned above, from perishing from the face of the earth! This is hypocrisy at its finest.
